The pool of nominees will be compiled and recognized monthly. All nominees will receive a certificate (signed by the Provost) and pin recognizing their nomination. Of the monthly pool of nominees, a random drawing will be held to award a "Token of Appreciation" to one employee. The winner can choose from a selection of prizes valued around $25. On-campus sponsors include Sodexo, University Bookstore, University Recreation and Sports Facilities, Service Center, and Alumni Association.
Nominations will remain in the pool for six months from the month of their nomination to give all nominees an equal amount of time to win a "Token of Appreciation." At the Service Recognition Banquet in May, all nominated employees will receive recognition.
November & December Employee Appreciation Award Winner Announced
Laura Manydeeds, Human Resources, was selected by random drawing to receive the Employee Appreciation Award for November. She was nominated in November 2014 by Shelley Mather who says, "I would like to nominate Laura Manydeeds for an employee appreciation award. Laura works tirelessly to make our work environment a joyous place and I am grateful to her for that. The employee wellness letter came out today and I realized how much I enjoy reading the entire thing. I especially love to learn how people make changes in their lives, both large and small, to improve the quality of their lives. I am inspired by this and I can feel Laura's passion for wellness in every word. Her excellent work ethic is reflected in the newsletter, the employee health fair, biometric screening events, employee orientation and everything she is involved in. I am happy to say Thank you to a wonderful person."
Barbara Hanson , Human Resources, was selected by random drawing to receive the Employee Appreciation Award for December. She was nominated in October by Wanda Schulner who says, "Barb Hanson is one of the hardest working people on campus. She shepherds the recruitment, hiring, and reappointment processes for unclassified staff. She was the impetus, the consultant, and the administrator for all e-forms related to those processes. Just about every action pertaining to unclassified staff goes through her. Because of that and because she knows so much about all local,
system and state rules and regulations, when something goes wrong, Barb is the go-to person. She is courteous and diplomatic and usually takes the blame even when the obstacle had nothing to do with her. She strives diligently to improve the processes but still takes many of the electronic actions home over weekends to finish out the lengthy completion task. Life on campus would be very difficult without Barb's presence and work ethic."
